Deleted and Extended ScenesEdit

With rehearsal time greatly reduced for this story, it was impossible to time how long the episodes ran before filming. As a result, a large amount of extraneous material had to be cut from the finished product. Over 20 minutes of bonus and extended scenes are presented here from earier edits of the story. (22'34" | 4:3 | 1988)
